Booking arrangements are as follows:
To secure a specific date you must pay the relevant booking fee in full ((you will pay an initial payment of £2000.00 and
then the balance by two further equal payments split between the months left before your event, last payment 3 months before your event date)) unless special circumstances)).
The booking fee is non-refundable. However we will under special circumstances move a date should the original date be no longer suitable.
You will also be required to sign our Terms & Conditions document and return a hard copy to us to complete the booking, otherwise the booking will not be deemed secured.
All other balances are due one month before your event and the cash bond/damage deposit two weeks before your event and any suppliers or yourselves are on site.
Our prices include V.A.T. We prefer to be open and clear with all of our investment prices.
You will ned to book the registrar once you have booked with us as our local Council Amber Valley Registrars will not take a booking without a venue being.
